Kelly, Trump & Schaitberger

Entry Img

Boss as Bully Narcissist The Kelly in the headline is White House chief of staff John Kelly, not the IAFF’s Kelly, a clarification that is essential because the difference could not be greater. John Kelly is a tough and disciplined gentleman, a decorated senior Marine officer with a very long record of service. You can […]

Our Man, Joe Blow, and the Race in the 7th

Entry Img

Joe Blow writes in so often (we like that even though we have no idea who he really is) that he needs an image so I googled Joe Blow and here is what I got. Joe loves Trump but appears not to be a fan of Shady Schait which could put me in a moral […]

7th Says NO to Shady Schait and EDZO

Entry Img

Walsh Wins by 20 Points In a closely watched race to replace retiring IAFF vice-president Kelly Fox, Ricky Walsh, former DVP, defeated Ryan Mudie in a run-off election where IAFF principal officers Harold Schaitberger and Ed “EDZO” Kelly pulled out all the stops in their drive to defeat Walsh. They made calls, held meetings and […]

Leadership: Bullying

Entry Img

Not a Winning Formula While we digest Trump’s recent Phoenix rant where he viciously attacked the First Amendment, we should also keep our eyes on what is happening in the Senate. “In a series of tweets this month, Mr. Trump criticized Mr. McConnell publicly, and berated him in a phone call that quickly devolved into […]

IAFF: When the Secret Report Fizzles

Entry Img

So Much For That Idea In a move increasingly seen as bizarre, Shady Schait and EDZO decided to release a heretofore super secret report purportedly showing leaks at the IAFF. The confidential report, prepared by private detectives under the control of Schaitberger, cost members $350,000. The reason for the release was to try and influence […]

IAFF: Kelly Fox and Stalog 1750

Entry Img

Escape From IAFF Foiled IAFF Vice-President and soon to be Cal-PERS pension guru Kelly Fox apparently thought escaping 1750 New York Ave. would be as simple as cutting the barbed-wire and then an easy jog to freedom. Nien! Like it or not (probably not) he has now been dragged into the Schady-Schait / “Edzo” orchestrated […]

IAFF: “Edzo”, “The Rat” and DOL

Entry Img

America’s Dumbest Video Am I the only person who has noticed that “Edzo” is just two short letters from Bozo? Bozo was, until the appearance of “Edzo”, our most famous clown. Bozo, like Edzo, made films, his best being Bozo’s Big Top. But Edzo’s latest film is no clowning matter. In it he trashes the […]

IAFF: Edzo Does His “Charlie McCarthy”

Entry Img

A Fool and His Microphone IAFF General Secretary-Treasurer Ed “Edzo” Kelly was in the 7th district this week making a fool of himself while simultaneously embarrassing our union as he campaigned in the district vice president race there. In a reprise of the famous ventriloquist Ed Bergen and his side-kick Charlie McCarthy, Kelly was Shady […]

Shady Schait and Ducky Don

Entry Img

Jeff Sessions Feels the Love Donald Trump all but fired his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, in an interview with the New York Times yesterday. He said, ‚ÄúSessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked […]

What Would George Think?

Entry Img

How About a Little Self-Control? George Washington, President Number One, is known to have been a man of few words. Historians point to his rather humble beginnings and his lack of a formal education as reasons for his relative silence. He was also in the company of intellectual big dogs, Adams, Jefferson and others, who […]
